My friend, Amber, said clothes look better on the floor. I see her point. 🙂

Oh My Glob: I Found the Bobbin!


Wow! I finally found the bobbin on the sewing machine. I’m in the process of disecting a YouTube video on how to thread the bobbin. Or put thread on the bobbin. Is it the same thing?
Now if only I could find the cord to plug in the sewing machine. I’m really making progress with this sewing thing. I feel like I’m one step closer to making Little Sister #1’s Thor costume.

I love this chick, Freckled Nest. We could be BFF’s. In real life, not just on the Internet. Until then, I’m going to try to build a relationship with my sewing machine. I hope the sewing machine will be forgiving of my mistakes.
I imagine the conversation with my sewing machine will be like this.


Less Busting Out and More Bras in 2014

Less Busting Out and More Bras in 2014

For 2014, I want world peace, inner peace and a thinner figure like everyone else. But what I really want is to not bust out of my bra again for at least a year. In 2013, I had five bras break. FIVE bras. It’s almost unheard of to have that many bras break in such a short period of time.
Since I would like to be stabbed less in the armpit, I want a really, really good bra. I want one that fits. I want a bra that lasts more than six months. One that won’t stab me in the armpit, while I’m at work. It’s a little inconvenient to have to take a break to rip the underwire out of both sides.I wish I could’ve saved them for some MacGyver-like situation, in which I save the world. However, I’m not sure what I could use the underwire for in reality.
I tried two from the new value line at Wal-Mart. They didn’t even last four months. So I’ve had enough of that line. Less expensive is not always the best value.
Some department stores, like JCPenney’s and Lazarus, used to have people to help with bra-fittings. As much as I don’t want to do a bra-fitting, it might be time.
